Do we have Aikido practicioners here? have you ever had to use your skills outside of Dojo? how did you fare?
30 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.
I'm currently deciding between judo and aikido.
Should I do both or will I learn bad habits?
Lots of people do both, there is even something of a truism that aikido is where old judo players go out to pasture. That said, beginning two arts at the same time is probably a bad idea for several reasons, both time management and keeping them separate.
Is it normal to "test" a teacher?
I'm going to check out an aikido dojo later today and I want to know what it feels like to be on the receiving end of an aikido move under normal conditions.
Happens all the time in every style. If you want to go out of your way to avoid seeming like a dick, schedule a private lesson. But otherwise, no one worth even a week's training with would care that you want to know you're at a good place.
Aikido is GREAT for learning stuntwork. The structure of training is designed for safe falls and compliant partner drills and looking good.

It has very little to offer in terms of grappling or combat sports. When people who are experienced in other combat sports are able to pull from Aikido something useful and incorporate it into their own style, that doesn't mean Aikido is valuable, it just means that practitioner has the ability to learn different things.

I'm not a hater but I understand why people don't like to watch him, he doesn't have good technique, it is average maximum. But, he constantly wins because of his huge size; if he was 5'10" he would be a recreational judoka. He was born with height though and he is using it to his advantage so I don't think there is anything wrong with it.
my throws suck ass
i'm going to stick to pulling guard forever
goodbye /judo/
>tfw plateauing
He's on the extreme high end of the heaviest weight division, which doesn't actually have a weight limit.

His wins are more due to being a massive man who can still manage to move somewhat athletically and while he obviously needs some technique to win, it's not that great and he seems to mostly win from penalties or a sloppy drag-down type of thing where he's just throwing his weight around. His Judo isn't relatable or relevant to anybody watching since everything he does relies on being a weight bully

Stupid fucking nigger. Why did you feel the need to make this its own thread? Was /cg/ not enough for you? You just had to put your bitching on its own pedestal? Fucking leave and never return.
youre not gonna form callouses overnight, climb 1-2 times a week for a month or two until you can feel your skin getting stronger.
yes it will hurt, dont overdo it.
Use chalk and tape
Stop climbing before your skin breaks, it'll heal faster
Rest up. Your hands will become suitably calloused in time. With experience, you'll learn to rely less on your hands for climbing and more on your feet.
It's natural to cling on with your hands as a newbie, with practise you'll learn that your feet can support literally all of your bodyweight on the smallest of nubs - your hands are there often just to maintain posture by pinching protrusions on the wall (overhangs being an obvious exception.)

Olympic weightliting for Judo?

Has anyone tried this/knows of anyone who supplements their Judo with Oly Lifting (Or vice versa)? What was the carryover/results like?
7 replies omitted. Click here to view.
The basic movements are a hell of a lot harder to learn than a deadlift or a squat, but even if we're deciding that that doesn't count as "hard to learn" it still takes much more time to put heavy weight on oly lifts than more basic ones. Oly lifting is plain inefficient unless it's your focus. Power cleans are probably as far as a martial artist should take it. Or do the kettlebell variations.
They aren't that hard to learn. In a month of training 2x a week for 2hrs you can have the snatch and C&J movements learned, and then you can just keep training and add weight slowly.
I agree with most of these comments. Olympic lifting I think has a very low ROI. Even if you spend 36 hours to do a "passable" c&j you could have spent that 36 hours practicing judo. It's also unclear whether your progression in the snatch and c&j is due to what you want to be training (power) or technique. I recommend doing normal compound lifts for strength then instead of OWL movements do: jumps and other plyometrics, throws with medicine balls/sandbags/etc "speed work" with the barbell Westside style, inc jump squats
Just get Kettlebell Pilled and do olympic lifting at home high volume, high rewards, especially for Judo.
Only issue is not everyone has a sparring partner available 36h of the week or able to go the dojo every day, usually dojos run 3 times a week schedule.

How would you create a team fighting sport? For instance, 2v2, 3v3, or 4v4. What would the meta look like, at least initially? I bet it would infact be primarily striking since going to the ground would be an incredible risk.

For instance, maybe something like a scaled-down version of Russian stenka:

>The "wall-on-wall" fight (with anywhere from dozen to several hundreds participants) was performed strictly by rules and could go on for hours. Both "walls" had a chief fighter, who served as a tactician and a commanding officer. "Walls" themselves were tight straight formations 3-4 ranks deep. Repeated attacks were performed, aiming to push the opposing "wall" out of the game area. Basic tactics were used, such as breaching using heavy fighters (who were usually held in reserve), encircling, false retreat and others; but as a rule, tight wall formation never broke. Tactics also included battle planning.

Then you might as well just have N individual fights and then just tally up the score. And if you have that why not just dispense with the scoring and teams entirely? Team fighting sounds interesting, like some old caveman fighting thing, but in reality fighting is an individual sport. Small scale hand to hand fighting has always been a one on one affair.
the team mates could still strategize on who to keep in play to give their team the best chance at winning. they could also try to do tactics like ganging up on the strongest guy of the other team in a blitz style at the start to get him out quicker, could be difficult to pull off, but its possible some interesting dynamics could be born of it. ive seen matches where it's 2v2 or 5v5 or so and yeah, as soon as one team loses one they've lost the whole fight. keeping the team numbers equal throughout is the only way to keep it competitive. though it might be interesting if they allow for some freak match ups like 3 fly weights vs 1 ngannou.
For the first mode the strategy is simple, keep the bigger and better team-mates in for longer, not a lot of thinking needs to go on. As for a few people ganging up on one fighter that won't work if there are equal people because putting all your attention on to one dude means you are super vulnerable as your back is turned, meaning you have like less than a second to do damage to one dude before your back gets taken and you lose. So that's why people fight one on one, because if they turn to face someone then they turn away from someone else.

So there really isn't a lot of strategy involved in team fighting because it's not like a relay, just a bunch of one on one fights. This makes team fighting a mostly pointless exercise.

If you really wanted a relay system then you could just have one fight going on and have team-mates tag in at certain points. So maybe you are a striker and someone gets on the ground, then maybe you tag in your grappler buddy to take things from there. But if you have either a finite number of tags or a cooldown between tags or a set tag order then there are constraints that you can actually build a strategy around. If you tag in the grappler and the other guy gets up then your grappler is facing a striker and so you might lose by KO etc.

Strategy requires constraints, and there really aren't any in an mma match, that's kind of the point, so teamfighting mma is kind of useless.
What if they gave each team a weight limit
Weight vs weight, teams can be pitted in uneven numbers as long as each participant falls under the allowed weight category, pankration rules other than no "stomps" on the grounded opponent or strikes to the back. Referee can call out any fighter that can't defend himself properly and has taken too many hits etc or gets bloodied out.

a stolen bike. Possibly a newer used entry level hardtail but don't expect it to survive rock gardens, jumps, or drops. Or an older mtb which won't be as good as newer ones and will still have a front derailleur, but it'll be good enough.

It was definitely a lot harder to climb with them even though I downsized to a 30T chainring. My other bike also has a 10-50T garbaruk cassette in the back, but I'm using a 32T chainring.

I NEED to ride. I don't crash on my gravel bike but that bike might be too aggressive to be comfortable on my wrists. I'll do a short test ride this weekend and then maybe I'll do a road ride

I think the same, I haven't really explored too much besides my surrounding mountains. You went to italian side of mont blanc? Italian women are hot. I went to chamonix this summer without the bike, the northern mountain looks quite steep and looking at a mtb website there are several track that go down but were closed july and august due to tourist. On the southern one(mont blanc) there are quite alot of trails, also steep. Kilian bron rode there https://www.instagram.com/reel/Cel44DlKiah/?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y=. If you look down you lose.

Yeah, this trail on the pic was really cool but I had to push/ride up a relatively steep trail to reach it (but I had an ebike). There seems to be a lift tho from the other side. I was in france mostly in pds so far (bikepark) but I'm interested in singletrails more now. (bikepark stuff gets kinda boring after a few years and since corona they tend to be too crowded for my taste)

>Italian women are hot.

don't tell me. I actually visited my italian crush in torino this august when I was going for montegenevre/briancon.
